My First Cross Stitch

As I’m finishing up the last of my Christmas crafting, I figured this would be the best post to end this quasi-hiatus with.  I originally started learning how to cross stitch for a Christmas gift, so it’s only fitting.  Next week I’ll be back with regular, current posts.  Thank you for your patience and I… Continue reading My First Cross Stitch

My First Cross Stitch Pattern

This is another repost from my first (failed) blog while I attempt to make it through this week without flipping every table I see. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻) This week’s Pinterest Project didn’t really come directly from Pinterest, but rather was inspired by an image I found while browsing Pinterest. I am a cross stitcher.  I picked up… Continue reading My First Cross Stitch Pattern

I wasn’t able to deliver the finished project myself – my coworker brought it to the new owner since she was meeting her yet… Continue reading Pentatonix: Finished!

Michaels Classes: Embroidery and Wreaths

Every time I take two Michaels classes back to back, the rest of my week ends up filling up and being rather draining.  As an introvert, I just want to craft with people and then come home and craft by myself (well, with my cats). The project we did for the first class encompasses my… Continue reading Michaels Classes: Embroidery and Wreaths
